Configuring a New Oracle SOA Domain on Oracle Enterprise Linux


With the current trend of having 64 bit as the new desktop standard, then you would most likely come into a situation where you have a hard time deciding what OS to buy that can support your software development tasks, while not being left behind. That OS selection decision is made simpler by the advent of Virtualization wherein you can have multiple OS on a single hardware machine.
In this series, I will share with you how I was able to set-up and run Oracle SOA Suite on my Windows 7 Professional 64 bit OS through Oracle VM VirtualBox.

This is Part V of the following series:
  1. Setting-up Oracle Enterprise Linux on Oracle VM VirtualBox 3.2.4
  2. Installing Java 1.6 on Oracle Enterprise Linux
  3. Installing Weblogic 10.3.3 on Oracle Enterprise Linux
  4. Installing Oracle SOA Suite on Oracle Enterprise Linux
  5. Configuring a New Oracle SOA Domain on Oracle Enterprise Linux


  1. Installed Oracle VM VirtualBox.
  2. Installed Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) on VirtualBox as described in the Part I of this series.
  3. Installed Java 1.6.0_20 on OEL as described in Part II of this series.
  4. Installed WebLogic 10.3.3 as described in Part III of this series.
  5. Installed Oracle SOA Suite as described in the Part IV of this series.
  6. You should have a valid database somewhere which is properly configured with the Repository Creation Utility (RCU).

Configuration Steps

Navigate to "MIDDLEWARE_HOME/Oracle_SOA1/common/bin" directory.
Right-click inside the directory and select "Open in Terminal".
Enter "./".
Select "Create a new WebLogic domain" and Next.
Check the appropriate products as shown in the screenshot.
Accept default domain name and directories.
Enter your password for weblogic.
Ensure that the Java 1.6 64 bit that we installed in the Part II of this series is available and selected in the list.
Select all the schema and provide the appropriate values for the following:
  • Service Name
  • Hostname
  • Password
  • Port


Running and Testing the Servers

Navigate to "MIDDLEWARE_HOME/user_projects/domains/base_domain/bin".
Right-click then select "Open in Terminal".
To start the Admin Server, enter "./". (Note: Case-sensitive)
To start the SOA Server, Click File>Open Tab to open a new terminal tab on the same directory.
Enter "./ soa_server1".
Enter username: "weblogic" and the password you entered in the steps above.
The SOA Server is already running when you see in the log "SOA Platform is running and accepting request".
If you are connected to a network then you can test logging-in to enterprise manager from a remote pc or from your host OS. But before so, we need to know the ip of our Oracle Enterprise Linux virtual machine.
To know the ip, in a terminal window, enter "/sbin ifconfig".
Get the ip information for use in the step below.
Open a new browser and enter "http://the_ip_above:7001/em"
Successfully log-in to enterprise manager from remote pc.

  1. hi,

    I am trying to create a combined SOA+OSB domain. I am able to create the domain and start the admin server. But when I try to create another domain, I am getting the following error.

    java.sql.SQLException: JDBC LLR, table verify failed for table 'WL_LLR_ADMINSERVER', row
    'JDBC LLR Domain//Server' record had unexpected value 'base_domain1//AdminServer' expected
    'base1_domain//AdminServer'*** ONLY the original domain and server that creates an LLR table
    may access it ***

    Why am I getting this error & how do I resolve it?
